Amino acids are fundamental building blocks of proteins that contain amino and carboxylic functional groups attached to a central carbon atom. They possess distinct physical and chemical properties, which include polarity, acidity or basicity, and unique side chains. They act as coenzymes that facilitate enzymatic reactions and drive metabolic processes in the body. They contribute to the production of antibodies and immune system components, aiding in defense against infections. They are widely employed in medical treatments for conditions like phenylketonuria (PKU) and certain metabolic disorders.
